Using the AJA Online Catalog

The AJA Online Catalog contains descriptive records from our collection of manuscripts, microfilm, audiovisual materials, nearprint, genealogy files, and photographs. The catalog allows users to search by entering keywords, such as the creator's name, subject headings, or geographic place names.

Below are some preformed search strategies to help you find material.

For tips on advanced searching (wildcard, fuzzy, proximity, boolean, etc.), see the Search Tips link at bottom of the catalog.

Note: The AJA Online Catalog does not yet contain records for all of the materials available at the American Jewish Archives. The catalog includes all new accessions since 1997, all major manuscript collections, the entire photo collection, as well as family histories, and most of the nearprint collection. We are presently at work retro-cataloging our entire collection. If you do not find what you are looking for or have any questions, please Ask an Archivist!
